Sewing a Straight Seam

Debbie Colgrove, Licensed to About.com
A straight seam is the easiest seam to learn control of the sewing machine. Concentrate on watching the fabric at the seam guide not the needle.

Keep the fabric lined up with the edge of the seam guide as you sew. A perfectly straight seam will be the result if you watch the guide and keep the fabric straight to the guide.
